About the Fisheries Biology Concentration


The Fisheries Biology concentration is designed to prepare students for careers focused on ecological and environmental factors that influence fishes and other aquatic organisms, with an emphasis on in-field training and experiences. Aquatic ecosystems face increasing threats from pollution, drought, invasive species, and water shortages. Students in this concentration learn the science and application of balancing increasing water demands with maintaining aquatic ecosystem services. Graduates from this concentration often work in state and federal agencies and non-governmental organizations, working on a range of applied and basic aquatic conservation topics.
